Based on Ken Kesey's landmark novel -- later made into the iconic, Oscar-winning movie starring Jack Nicholson -- One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest follows Randle McMurphy, a small-time crook who fakes insanity to get out of a prison sentence. But instead of resting up at the state mental hospital, the rebellious yet charming McMurphy finds himself going toe-to-toe with the authoritarian Nurse Ratched as he attempts to stir up his fellow mental patients. The dynamics of live performance only heighten the tension between these two exquisitely drawn characters. Tough, touching and tragic, this American classic advocates poignantly for the dignity of every single person, no matter how "crazy" they might be. Learn More

My four year old daughter loved the show. The actors have done a great job. Although some of them were not as good at others, in general, the show was performed quite greatly. Elves coming out during the intermission showing some tricks to children was a nice move!
The Grove Theatre is proud to announce the opening of the “cutest” Christmas show you’ll ever see, The Elves and The Shoemaker. The shoemaker has a kind heart but little money in his pocket. Moved by the plight of an old beggar man, he gives him his last pair of shoes. The poor shoemaker has leather enough to make only one more pair of shoes and sets out to work on them on Christmas Eve morning. Then, the fun begins! Out pop five weird, endearing little elves who whip up the most fantastic and magical shoes the little town has ever seen. Here’s an upbeat, fast-paced retelling of an old favorite, based on a Grimm fairy tale, filled with delightfully wacky characters and clever dialogue. This upbeat, whimsical romp of a fantasy also holds a gentle message about the nature of kindness.
